I had more problem with Bosch than with Lucas, prince of 
darkness. At least the Lucas stuff I could rebuild (on a '58 MGA). I 
do remember driving down the highway tapping to the electric fuel 
pump with a wrench to keep it ticking over... at least I could reach 
it. Everything built then was *repairable*, like Leicas - it wasn't yet 
part of the disposable culture.
